Welcome to #FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog  and That’s What I’m Talking About.

It is time to commit to exercise for the month of  Feb! Whether you are just joining us, need to get back on the wagon, or just going to keep up your progress from Jan– now is the time to stand up and say “I’m in! I’m committed to getting up and getting moving!”

So are you ready to commit to fit? Remember there will be weekly check-ins, motivation on twitter (#FitReaders), and FitBit Challenges (My Fitbit: //www.fitbit.com/user/242M56) 

Don’t forget that we also have a Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fitreaders/

We also have a pinterest board: (if you want to contribute just email me your email and I will add you):  http://www.pinterest.com/messtobest/fitreaders-recipes/

Also please let me know if I accidentally missed adding you to this board:http://www.pinterest.com/messtobest/fitreaders/

We are also putting together a community on FitBit (more information coming soon)

My Goals this month: Find an eating plan that works. I gained last month despite being under calories advised. I need to find out which foods are just not digesting well in my body. It is a journey but one I am committed too.

Let’s get this month started by adding your link down below!

  1. I’m back for anotehr month. Lost about a week and a half from my injury but I hope to get right back in to it for Feb. Started off not too bad, with my 5k (I walked instead of running the 10K I was signed up for because of my knee) on Feb 1. Then this morning (2/4) I was out there for 6 miles. I suspect tomorrow will probably be our standard 4.5 miles but don’t know yet.

  2. I’m in! Hoping to add a weekly BodyFlow class to my workout. I’ll be doing a lot of traveling in February, so also, try to keep eating under control!

    February goals –
    I will continue my training plan for my upcoming St. Pat’s 5k with my favorite running dog (3 training days per week).
    I will continue eating Whole30/Paleo, I can tell a difference in my moods more than anything.
    I will continue tracking my food intake on myfitnesspal, I need more protein in my diet.
    I will continue with 10k steps per day average with 70k weekly goal.
    Good luck to everyone else with their goals.

  4. I’m so proud of myself! I got back on the Couch to 5K program in January and I’ve been doing super well. I’ve actually been running faster than the first time I did the program a few months ago. So that definitely makes me feel good. 🙂

    I’m only going to the gym three days a week as I’m following the program but I’m hoping to incorporate sit ups and stuff on my “off” days.

  5. I’m in!!! I think I need to focus on my eating as well – I used to be good at tracking it, but then stopped. I think I’m going to go back to using MyFitnessPal for that. I’m also still training to walk my next 1/2 marathon – 6 weeks to go!!!

  6. Yay February! I’m planning on signing up for a Zumba class this month — didn’t want to sign up last month because I don’t think they pro-rate the first month’s cost. So time to get on that …

  7. Keeping on keeping on with what I’ve been doing in January. Going to try and get to the gym more often or increase my time there. Would also like to start running on the treadmill when I’m on it 🙂

    Way to go everyone for making it through January 🙂

  8. I’ll be continuing on from January with my goals. Even though I’m not publicly tracking my weight, I have been checking the scale about once a week, and so far I’m not losing any weight, despite going from almost completely sedentary to hitting my step goal every week. I also started following Clean Eating magazine meal plans, with a few adjustments because I’m vegetarian, and doing everything I can to stay away from added sugar, processed foods, etc. So, I’m not really sure why I haven’t lost any weight at all. It’s a little discouraging, but I’m trying to keep in mind that even if I’m not seeing results on the scale or in my clothing size, I’m making healthy choices, and that’s more important.

    • If you’re exercising, you should consider doing measurements instead of weighing yourself. You’ll often lose inches but not weight because you’re also gaining muscle as you lose fat. 🙂

    • if you’re exercising regularly and doing anything more than you are used to, don’t expect to lose weight just by that alone. the only way to actually LOSE weight is by burning more calories than you are eating. You will however lose inches if you are working out and getting up into your active heart rate zone because you’ll be burning fat and gaining muscle. One pound of each weighs the same but the difference is in size. One pound of muscle is much denser than fat and takes up less space, hence losing inches but not pounds. I run at least 3 days/week (except when injured) but haven’t lost a single pound. I have however lost inches. How much, I don’t know yet, I meant to take measurements last weekend and didn’t. But my pants are looser so that’s how I know inches are creeping down, if not weight.
